  1. Quilter at heart

    by , 06-07-2012 at 04:11 PM
    June 7th at Windy Ridge Cottage;
    I have not posted much in the last weeks, as I have been really, really busy running around and around! I feel like I am going in circles and will soon see my own back side if I do not slow down, but it has been so much fun.

    My first big change, is that we have bought a new house, and I am in the midst of changing many things in the house, like carpet out, bamboo in. So far I have the bamboo flooring in the studio, hall and my bedroom. Many ...

  2. quilter at heart

    by , 06-07-2012 at 04:06 PM
    When I went to the Paducah quilt show this year, I got 8 box's of Polar Notions mini bolts. I have been wrapping my fabric on them and oh my I can get so much more fabric stored in the same space and so much nicer looking, and easy to get to. I really really like these mini bolts!!!

    I have my new room arranged well enough now that I can get some sewing done. Still have lots of things to move over here from the other house, but no worries I can work on a project again, and that is ...

  6. The Sad Little Elephant

I was so excited to make this but knew that it may be a challenge for me since I still have not mastered sewing curves or using very small pieces. So today I sat down determined to complete this. After about two hours of sew and rip, sew

  7. Using Rubber Stamps in my Quilt

    by , 06-07-2012 at 03:37 AM
    I am thinking of making a memory quilt for my niece's wedding. Is anyone familiar with an ink product that will be permanent and is easy to use with a rubber stamp? I have heard of Speed Ball ink.. Any and all comments will be greatly appreciated as the wedding is in July...and I must get started. Thank you.

  8. Is quilting a hobby or an art?

He asked why I would go to the trouble of getting a university degree “just for some old hobby.” I love traditional quilts because they comfort me, but I also like unconventional ones, having been influenced by Beth and Jeffrey Gutcheon’s The Quilt

  9. It's been awhile.....

    by , 06-06-2012 at 01:08 PM (Fl quilt Chic)
    It's been awhile since I've blogged. I think it's time for a re-cap. My last few blog entries have been about a fabric moratorium and finishing up UFO's, WIP's or whatever you want to call them.

    The fabric moratorium....well, it has gone pretty well. But, I can't say I haven't bought any fabric. And, I did buy fabric I didn't really need. I HAVE policed my purchases much closer. And, I do intend to continue in this frame of mind. So, not a complete WIN or a complete BUST.
